    Going contrary to the reviews on here, but Surly's Cacao Bender was tapped while we were waiting in line at Darkness day and it just about ruined DD for the group of friends I was with. Extremely astringent and pretty much destroyed our taste buds. It took a while before any of us could get some sense of taste back. Maybe a bad keg, I don't know, but the particular pours we got were sewer pours after a few drinks.

    FL: Swamp Ape (haven't had Landshark)
    NY: Syracuse Suds Factory Irish Red. Worst beer I've ever had. I have an unopened bottle of Labatt's Genuine Draft from the mid-90s that's probably more drinkable.

    Formerly made in AZ, Cave Creek Chili Beer. Currently made here, SanTan Rail Slide, I just can't get past the black licorice flavor. I despise black licorice. Also, College Street did a one time, cucumber and cilantro infused Jesse's Malt Liquor. Tasted like a pickled St. Ides!

    NJ Beer Co. Garden State Stout. Thin, watery, zero nose, very bland taste.

    MI: Short's Key Lime Pie. It reminded me of key lime yogurt. The taste just does not translate well in liquid form. I do enjoy their other beers. I also had a hard time drinking a beer with grahm cracker floaties.

    Two Brothers had an Altbier on tap at the Roundhouse. I gave it 3 drinks. I could go no further.

    Kid Rock's Badass American Lager. Love Kid Rock and he's a great ambassador for Michigan. But this brew is horrible!

    Oregon -- Lompoc Proletariat Red. Golden Valley's Red Thistle Ale comes to mind as well...

    Oregone- your mention of Peach Fred inspired me to change my answer for worst OR beer. While I actually enjoyed the Peach Fred, it was the Apricot Fred that I literally had to choke down. Can't believe I forgot about how horrible that beer was; I think I may have blocked it out mentally.

    So for OR, new answer is... Hair of the Dog Apricot Fred.

    Really? I'm not really a Throwback fan, but there are half a dozen White Birch "experiments" that trump anything from Throwback when it comes to worst in the state.

    And now that I think of it, can we just submit the state liquor commission in lieu of a specific beer? o_O

    I have to politely disagree. The base beer may be crap, but I had my first BBA right in Lexington a few years back and loved it. Had some again last year when it came to MA, and it tasted just as good. I know not many beers come out of Kentucky, but this can't be the worst.

    I feel that White Birch at least "experiments" with new beers whereas Throwback literally creates these terrible beers they produce for the market. And they're too expensive.

    I really dislike this thread. I try to support my local breweries regardless of how good they are compared to others. No such thing as a bad beer only better ones.

    MO. Lol: Natural Light, Busch, Busch Light, Bud Select 55, and so many more ... But, seriously the Dark Bock and Dark Wheat from Bootleggers Restaurant & Brewery were equally as bad as the Pilsner from Charlie's Steak, Ribs & Ale!

    I'm going to have to disagree here. I can think of a lot of bad beers.

    I have to agree and your comment may be charitable. I keep trying them but .... recently their Kolsch.... flat and off tastes present. Maybe I'm just unlucky and buy bad bottles. I never buy a six-pack but occasionally will try a single.
